Recipe Update: Mom's Zucchini Casserole

Zucchini is such an interesting veggie isn't it?  Because it's rather 'bland', it can take on the taste of other things, or just add moistness...and vitamins! 

My mother would can zucchini and make it taste like pineapple!!

This is my favorite way to eat zucchini and it was my mom's favorite way to serve it. I have been asked to share this recipe more times than I can count!


You mix dry stove top dressing with cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and some veggies...it's an amazing dish. You hardly know the zucchini is there.

I remember serving this to a friend years ago and he exclaimed...
"How do you take things I don't like and make them taste SO GOOD"!?

The cornflake topping makes for great crunch and taste.
